CHICKEN Scheme hacking sprint

On our last meeting at FrOSCon the idea of having another hacking sprint (aka CHICKEN weekend) has come up. I am willing to organize logistics for a meetup at Nuremberg, Germany. Since some foreign guests might want to do a little sightseeing as well and we are already busy in autumn with T-DOSE in Eindhoven, I propose one of the first three december weekends.

Most CHICKEN Hackers plan to stay at the "Hotel ibis Nuernberg City"

Located at: Koenigstorgraben 9 90402 - NUERNBERG GERMANY Tel.: (+49)911/24090 Fax.: (+49)911/2409413

Who is allowed to join?

This is an open invitation for anyone that wants to help the CHICKEN Scheme project improve.

What will be provided?

I will organize the venue and come up with a plan to get food and entertainment in time without the hassle to reinvent democracy. I might be able to come up with some interesting accommodation venues but that is still in a planning stage.

What will we be doing there?

Hacking on CHICKEN, socialising and having fun of course. An initial proposal for possible topics has been made by Felix (feel free to add your topic!):

What can I do if I am too far away or otherwise unable to come to Nuremberg?

We will also have a close eye on our IRC channel #chicken on freenode, so you can join the fun via the internet!
